Hello. I am new to this forum and just introducing myself. I am also pretty new to chickens. I've had my little flock for 9 months now. I live in Northwest Oregon. I have a flock of 14 hens (2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Black Austrolorps, 3 Buff Brahma Bantams, 2 Silver Laced Polish, 2 White Silkies, and 1 Blue Silkie.) I am totally hooked on chickens now! I look forward to getting to know everyone here, and learning all I can.
